The first phase of the plant involved investment of 500 million yuan (76 million U.S. dollars).

As Coca-Cola's third-largest market, China offers exciting opportunities and the firm has full confidence in the Chinese market, said James Quincey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Coca-Cola.

Quincey said the firm will continue to work with COFCO to offer new products for Chinese consumers.
